“The screamers and squealers among American teen-agers once again had something to scream about: the Bee Gees gave their first American concerts here last night.
Despite a string of No.1 records in both Britain and the United States, the Bee Gees and their manager, Robert Stigwood, deliberately try to create a demand for live concert appearances – and to increase the volume of screaming when they do appear.
The choice of Anaheim’s Convention Center for their first American concerts ( at 6 PM and 9.30 PM) was calculated. The group had had four No 1 hits in a row in Los Angeles.”

[New York Times, January 29, 1968]


“The Bee Gees are to headline their own show at the Hollywood Bowl on July 26 to start their 25 city USA tour.
The tour is to extend over seven weeks and is expected to gross a minimum of a million dollars for the group. The Bee Gees and their manager Robert Stigwood returned from Los Angeles last week with news of this tour, after two appearances at the Anaheim Convention Centre – where they grossed 70,000 dollars for their one night- and appearances on two American Network television shows.
The Bee Gees will be appearing in concert in America with an orchestra -as in their last appearance in this country, at the Saville. Said Robert Stigwood: “As  far as I know, this will be the first time in America a group will have appeared live, before an audience, with an orchestra to back them.”
The group’s next appearance in England will be on Wednesday, March 27, where they will be in concert with a 60-piece orchestra.
The Bee Gees have just returned from Scandinavia, where they played six concerts to capacity audiences. They were backed by a 25-piece orchestra. They are the first group to have three records in the Swedish Top Twenty, and also the first group to have records at numbers one and two in the German charts.”
